When I attended the 2012 “When Words Collide”, I had the opportunity to speak with a number of old friends and make a few new ones. One of the old friends is Tina Moreau. When I first, she was a young writer who also read slush for a local press. Shortly after that, she started to work as an editor for that same press.
Then she took a break to start a family and I didn’t see her for a couple years.
This year’s convention marks the first time I’ve seen her in a couple years and she came to Calgary as the head of a brand new publishing house. Tina is a co-owner and publisher for Tyche Books. I had the opportunity to sit down with Tina and hear exactly what Tyche is looking for. They have some really interesting ideas and I look forward to seeing more from them.
I also talk about adding pizzazz to your writing using experiences and interesting facts.
That’s today’s episode. I hope you enjoy it.
